Radiocrafts AS, a leading
provider of RF modules, today presents a cloud connection solution for Internet of Things (IoT) applications,
connecting low power radio sensor networks to cloud services.
FX30 expansion boards from Radiocrafts makes up a complete gateway together with
the 3G/4G LTE modem from Sierra Wireless. By using the Radiocrafts expansion board for the FX30 and
implementing network nodes based on the Radiocrafts RF modules, a complete IoT sensor network with cloud
connection is easily made. Radiocrafts develops and manufactures RF modules for many RF protocols, such
as Wireless M-Bus, KNX-RF and ZigBee, as well as the proprietary protocols
and RC232. The new gateway makes it now easy to connect these networks to a cloud service.
The new FX30 expansion boards goes together with the industry’s smallest, most rugged and programmable
3G/4G LTE cellular modem available in the market. Expanding it with short range wireless technology
from Radiocrafts makes it a versatile gateway solution, covering a wide range of applications and standards.
The FX30 Gateway has an internal slot for expansion cards, where the Radiocrafts expansion card is
plugged in. The interface between the main Gateway CPU and the expansion cards are via UART or SPI.
The solution supports most of the low power wireless protocols provided by Radiocrafts. The rugged housing
makes it ready and easy to install in the field.
The new FX30 makes it easy to connect any wireless IoT sensor network to any cloud service. The device
can be managed, controlled and monitored through the Sierra Wireless’ AirVantage® Cloud Services. But
the gateway is not locked to any specific cloud service supplier. So the data can be forwarded to any
cloud solution preferred by the user.
The FX30 integrates the Legato® Open Source Linux Platform that simplifies application-level development
with a secure application framework, maintained Linux distribution, and feature-rich development environment.
Legato® enables efficient C-level programming, making FX30 the core component for distributed IoT systems.
